Helping Jacqueline beat Cancer

Jacqueline is a very strong, independent individual. She has raised two sons by herself, with no financial support except what she earnt. They are now starting their own lives (aged 20 and 22), one in the military, the other starting out with Costco here in Victoria. She is very proud of them, as they are of her and the strength she is putting forth to fight this.
Now, without warning, on April 13th she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She did all the right things; sought immediate medical help, had surgery within three weeks and then waited while the results were analysed. She now faces three months of chemotherapy followed by radiation therapy.
On top of that, there is an additional

financial burden as not all of the treatment costs are covered.
She has had her first week of chemotherapy; it has been devastating (see the difference between the picture of her with her sons and today). Surviving will be her only 'occupation" for the next six months, at least.
But harder still, apart from Employment insurance (too little too short) she has no other source of income, since detecting the tumor. She has exhausted her reserves and now she needs your help.
As her friend I ask "Please help in any way"
